Note: Although Club Penguin Island is closing on December 20, we’ll be answering questions and showing off some concepts we’d been brainstorming. These contain ideas that won’t be added into the game. 

Hi penguin pals,

Many of you have noticed something strange about the crabs on Club Penguin Island—they’re all terrified of royalty! Typing a king or queen emoji by a crab often gets an unhappy reaction.

Why is this? Well, it was all part of the plan for Rockhopper Adventure’s chapter 2.

After chapter 1, Rockhopper had defeated Shellbeard (um, with a little help from the player) and discovered the Bottle of Fair Winds. With his new treasure, he had an endless stream of wind to take his ship anywhere in the seas.

Although the story was very early in development, we knew Rockhopper would set sail to discover new lands. Of course, this wouldn’t go quite as planned. His journey would lead him to the home of the royal crab family, led by Queen Clawdia.

Clawdia is a spoiled queen who throws tantrums and demands her followers do everything for her. In fact, she was making them build a statue of her when Rockhopper stumbled in. Unhappy with his unexpected invasion, Clawdia turns her anger to the pirate captain… and the player!

The interesting thing about Clawdia is that her character was first planned in Club Penguin—well, kind of. There was a concept for a new villain called Clawdius that never did make it into the game.

The idea changed over the years until finally it became Queen Clawdia, the angry and bratty leader of the crabs.

And THAT’S why crabs are afraid of royalty.

Waddle On

But shouldn’t rock hopper have ghost powers, shellbeard got it inside the crystal, although he looked like hedidn’t age in there so he shouldn’t be a ghost
